decisions are being made about you and about your community locally and nationally so that creates an interesting situation. we use the voting booth as a tool to bring common people into democracy. that is our way to participate, to go into the booth on that tuesday during the work day and check some boxes. that is our contribution. that is how we show what we want. we pick between a few people. a lot of millennials do vote. there are a lot of millennials who don't vote. there are a lot of millennials, as the title of of the report indicates, our dissolution. maybe they think their vote doesn't count. maybe they don't like the candidates. maybe they think that voting is too much of a hassle. but they are not voting that they are still being affected. there are many other people who are voting for different reasons. immigrants, their huge demographic changes taking place all across the country and whether you have documents or not you're in the country and the results of the elections to affect you. but you're not having as they necessarily in those results. convicted felons, they a
dissertation research, i got in my car, drove around the country and interviewed local level tea party leaders and local diners and restaurants we sat down. i went to virginia, pennsylvania, kentucky, utah, california and do a surprising how similar the worldviews of these tea partiers were and yet so distinct from my academic colleagues at ucla where i've been getting a phd. for the first one i'd like to make, one thing that sets the tea party apart from many others if they have a very traditional review. so essentially, they have this view america's land of opportunity and that all people regardless of backgrounds can succeed. now this is not to say, but they have this even more so and this is how the answer poll questions and how they help explain a lot of there there policy positions that other people have a hard time understanding. the scope of this. so these are some signs i took at a washington d.c. tea party protest here by the capital. you often see signs like this. don't spread my wealth. spread my work ethic. stop punishing and rewarding failure. this is all part of a common thing.
and the supreme court. it's all very important. it's very important, but on the ground in local communities and many of your communities, the vitality of religious freedom depends on the attitudes of the people in those communities, particularly where there is one hanging a large majority. you know this course. groups in the minority, hatches if you will, in some areas of the country, sufferer. whether it is the one church in the northern alabama who complains about something in the school and is vilified and has to finally leave the county or whether it's the muslims trying to build in oscar and a community that doesn't want it or whatever it is, much depends on how people see it. the government may be doing fine. in many disputes involving muslims the government is doing well in terms of defending the rights. it's the attitudes of local communities that make life difficult for people in our work places, in their schools, in their homes and i think that's what we have to worry about. one of things when you talk about vitality of religion in the united states. i'm going to be super boring a
in congress or with local businesses to create jobs and congressional district 18. over the rear of the three policies and also access to capital. a small community banks are suffering from the unintended consequences of the dodd-frank. and we have to understand we are not out of the woods for the for closure in the united states of america. st. lucie counties in the top two counties in the state of florida which is the highest. >> moderator: people are listening for solutions what is the solution for your district to create jobs, not about policies that failed or succeeded in the past but specifically what are you doing for district 18 or should i say what you do mr. murphy, 30 seconds? murphy: congressman west is great had planning people and pointing the finger but we have to be serious about solutions and as a small-business owner and cpa i've created jobs and not just talked about it and the first thing i would like to push forward is a piece of legislation that allows businesses of all sizes 6% of their investment and property plant and equipment in the first year to invest in this coun
variations with mortgage money and rate, no standardization, all done very locally with very different standards in the mortgage market was not at all connect it in as a result, rates were quite high in those days. subsequently, the mortgage market has changed radically and in large part because of ready, cne and the gses. most importantly, the mortgage market got hayley connected to the capital market, the secondary function performed by the gses connected the mortgage market to large pools of assets to the capital markets, including not just the u.s., but worldwide. there is standardization required by the gses, virtually an illumination of the variability in rates and liquidity by region. there was a broadening out in the access of mortgage money in our country before a very limited high income people very limited in terms of ethnic back down. the gses brought not a substantially and made sure there was white bread availability, fixed-rate, 30 year mortgages. think about what is so special about mortgages and our country. today, for 3.5% interest rate, you can get dirtier money with
parents saw britain rebuild after the second world war. i was in a local national health service hospital, the same hospital my two sons would later be born. as you saw the film, i went to my local school. which may local comprehensive as people from all backgrounds. i still remember the amazing and inspiring to choose a school. a lot of my teachers, my english teacher, chris dunne is here with us today and all the teachers. [applause] it was a really tough school, but order was kept by one of the scariest diseases you could think of, mrs. jenkins. but you know what? i learned at my high school a lot more than how to pass exams. i love to get on with people from all backgrounds, whoever they were. i wouldn't be standing on the stage today without my comprehensive school education. [applause] so britain gave me -- so britain gave me, my family a great gift to my parents never have come to a safe secure childhood. and you know my parents didn't talk much about their early life. it was too painful. it hurts too much. the pain of those they lost, the guilt. but i believe that their experience
it because so much of it has to do with our public lands in the attitudes locally will help me help you in making this a reality. i think engaging, harnessing and asking for the health of the nation's governors. so typically meet with the president once or twice a year and you get briefings as opposed to the president saying, i need your help. please go out and do this. i need help on health care 2014 is around the corner. i need some help on energy policy. let's help to fill in the gaps and make it a national effort if you will. i think there's huge untapped potential in that area that could speak to bipartisanship. >> i think the biggest policy achievement might have been welfare reform. and that was done by clinton who was congressionally accepted. on the republican side a couple of democratic governors. so i think you could imagine, certainly if you have serious health care reform, the republican version of health care reform includes medicaid back to the states. you need to have a serious and truthfully than obamacare will depend on this day. you need to have a serious conversation
, state and local government plan these issues, particularly family planning. you guys attached on now. how much control should government have? what should i pay for and where should it stop? >> that's a big question. [laughter] does anyone want to begin? [laughter] >> now, when i take white house -- [laughter] [applause] i think that we should look at in terms of where the government begins and ends. i think that we are saddled with an insurance system in this country because of what happened after world war ii, an insurance system to provide health care. other countries don't have that to the extent we do. even countries that do allow it. so we have this insurance system that let the government reasonable job is, to make sure that the insurance system allows enough access so that people can be covered within a reasonable premium amount. and that is done simply by watchdog and certain regulations. now, the truth is whenever you have the government involved, you have a question of whether they are doing it as cheaply as possible. but that is why we are still using the insurance system
which is the money i think flows to local tv stations there are big local tv stations and conglomerate local tv stations. but those tv stations make a huge amount of money from political ads. it is a great business probably because they can essentially inflate prices, make up quotes, bid prices effectively because no one knows what the real price people are paying our and they are resisting a proposal and can can describe better than i can. >> this is the whole idea what i was talking about in the beginning. the tv stations and broadcasters were some of the folks saying it's too burdensome to put this stuff online. it's too burdensome to make this public. before was required to be put upon mind to find out what groups are spending of the candidates are spending, the actual amount of tv stations, you have to go there in person paul records yourself. that is incredibly burdened found as a citizen in this country. so you've got that and you've got the fact these ads run by candidates has a certain amount of money those costs. you can't inflate those ads. these outside groups say it now co
master minded working with white northern abolitionists as well as local black operatives like paul jennings, an escape, and they were after them, found them, and pulled the schooner back to washington as well as the human cargo, and those on board now faced the fate most dreaded which was sail to the deep south and permanent separation from home and family. .. and spent over four years in jail what really impresses me about the story is that this was 1848. paul jennings first full year of freedom, so he risked his heart one status to try to help others reach freedom themselves. and along that same year or so,r he also sat for his the garrey type. anis is the only loan nonet like miss of jennings or any montpellier slave and at the home of paul jennings great alexder.ghter, sylvia jennings alexandrean. the keeper of the jennings fi family oral tradition and several jennings direct descendants are in the audience today. knocked mrs. alexander. she died year-and-a-half after i got to know her. she was by far the last survivor of that generation. her father, her grandfather, paul's son
they shouldn't be in certain areas, i mean, for their own good because the locals could beat them up. turkey has that problem, and it's trying to push -- trying to pull the west into this, especially with what happened this week. turkey is a member of nato so any attack against turkey is an attack against every nato member, but the nato members vice president stepped up to the -- haven't stepped up to the plate. >> i wonder why that is? >> they don't want to involved in this. united states don't want to get involve in these things right now, and so turkey, with turkey's strong response, it's really trying to then draw, lay the tracks for the syria, and then hire civilians, and then say look what's going on to the western powers. turkey's in a bad dilemma right now. i would not want to be there at this point in time. >> [inaudible] >> just what -- i don't know, i have not seen the areas. what i read, you know, it's been burned, damage to the -- a beautiful place when i visited there, and everybody that loves syria, you know, loves the middle east, islamic monuments and whatever, we cry every
know, big picture, national issues. >> host: her job is to localize the race? is that the strategy here? >> guest: it is. also, she, you know, she certainly distanced herself from the national party and from president obama on certain issues. one being the keystone pipeline which obama opposes and she has, you know, repeatedly said she supports. she's emphasized that she would try to protect north dakota farmers from over regulation which is something that people worry about with democrats being in power, and cap-and-trade is another area where she differs from the democrats so she's focused probably more on where she differs from the national party than where she, you know, agrees with them as well. >> host: willing to go out and criticize the obama administration if she has to in this race? >> guest: yep, she definitely has been. >> host: talk about movement in polls. is this stuck in a toss up for a long time? is this more volatile race or influenced by tonight's debate? >> guest: you know, it could be, but the polls have been consistent for awhile. for a long time, there were not in
, the changes on the margins among any group, no matter what their proclivities are our local politically consequential. even though evangelicals are strong in their direction, it can have big political consequences. the same thing is true on the other side you have strongly democratic groups remain that way. if they move in a republican direction, that can be important as well. the campaign can have impacts not just among the closely divided groups but others as well. >> i'm not sure any of that matters because of the electoral college. instead of looking at demographics and trying to find this, we do it by state. when it comes to religion in campaigning, it was a lot written about evangelical voters. evangelicals show that it is really backing mitt romney strongly. i would agree with mark, too, that i think the campaigns more time to get out their base with the electoral college. >> i just had a question about your chart. you he had a breakout of the five groups. what about the hispanics. that doesn't automatically make sense to me. considering that there are more hispanics registered t
of fraternal organization, the local community groups and the declining participation of religious activities that gave people the culture that defines this country. that problem is serious -- [inaudible] well, robert had been made industry. the original article is worth reading an important that every graduate student for the rest of the time will be reading them in clinical science and sociology. contact him at the decline of civic culture of television viewing is made worse by television viewing and a device that dr. troy was kind enough to raise into his hands because it tells you where this is going. people are not participating at levels they would. so what does it mean for us as a jews and people who are a democracy? during the clinton years and bush one and two, a public discussion with was featured out like, less personal, more significant. and in fact in many ways, more jewish. there is no place in the khmer, no matter how heated the argument is that people say i'm going to sheedy today i'm going to do something to excommunicate you because you're in a missile in and cutting off you
locale. so we need to bring the corporate tax rate down and we need to make sure also that we change the very peculiar rarity and tax law, which forces american multinationals that mr. powell does not like, we need to make sure they don't pay taxes twice if they are operating abroad. he was suggesting that perhaps that is giving them a tax rate. but of course, we have a system that ties one hand behind the back of our american based multinationals. we want them here, they create jobs. they would do well overseas, they will create more jobs here at home. similarly, we have to do the same with individuals. the overwhelming number of businesses filed, 95%, file as individuals. and they pay their taxes at individual rates. subchapter asked. in order to make sure that they come down, we have to do some reform and make some tough decisions of how we're going to close the loopholes. the problem is the president and his party have said, tax reform for starts with tax increases. there is a disagreement on that. mr. powell is right, that disagreement -- that is what this election is about. how
. the corner store participates to help the little league or the local church to participate to get people summer jobs jobs and a little bit of philanthropy sometimes. we do that everywhere. we do it through the organ -- foundation. we do over $200 million a year. we have programs for global citizen issue which my friend peter scheer started here. we are going to lots of cities to help them grow economically and create jobs and helping environments. we do a tremendous amount for education and veterans. we have hired, and if you're a veteran in this room thank you very much for serving this country, we have hired 4800 veterans this year in the last 18 months or so. there is this thing called 100,000 jobs which we help starting hired 28,000 veterans and we have done 4500 ourselves. while other people are talking, we are doing. before this program we will do 1000 so we try to participate and to me it's all the same thing, healthy vibrant company, makes it all possible. the dying company, now been it is possible. i will put it in that same thing by the way, people say as an employee or shareho
codes that then release in effect unlocks weapons that then allow them to be used at a local level. at the time, for the u.s. nuclear forces, there were, thanks to kennedy's having brought the u.s. to alert, the death con 2 so-called during the missile crisis, they had basically loosened the safety catches on all the nuclear weapons, none of which had permissive action links or locks so there were sitting on runways in germany, in turk ky with german and turkish pilots, with nuclear bombs, fully loaded, if taken off, at their own initiative, they could have dropped them and been a trigger to war. >> host: another comment on twitter from january saying "i think all presidents learn on the job because they've never been in the situation before" echoing comments you made earlier. let's hear from don calling us from north carolina on the democrats' line. good morning, don. >> caller: good morning. i would like to ask the guest about an accident i was involved with which was in november of 1983, i was a ship leader on a nato f-111 nuclear strike force, and we were in the middle of an ex
the local city council. i knew nothing of israel palestine. due to the inadequate distorted media coverage we have on this very important subject. just to set the scene i will mention a few years ago we did studies on u.s. coverage but being at how the u.s. news media covered death of both populations. rediscover the first year there were 28 israeli children and 131 palestinian children killed. how was this covered prime-time news network? would get the chart a we've boarded israeli children's death and 14 times greater than palestinian deaths of many americans have no idea that they are being killed at all. the final chart is "the new york times" report the first curve year times reporting on israeli children death during the first year. mess -- next to see the actual death curve and it is the light blue column following a similar kerf although little lower because they had follow-up reports. for the palestinian children who were killed the first year is the red line and follows a similar curve to the israeli children death in is lower but similar then we see the actual death curve killed
in greencastle. the trout reexperience the this summer was devastating to hoosier farmers and local economies and pose a threat to public health. whether or not this truck can be attributed to climate change, climate scientists agree we should be more drought in more extreme heat. some more threats to public health and the economy. i'm not asking whether you agree this consensus. i'm asking if you believe the u.s. government has a significant responsibility to help individuals prepared for climate related threats to our well-being and if so, what specific policies that you recommend? if not, adapting to climate instability is largely responsibility of individuals in the private market. >> moderator: one minute. horning: is more political discussion and science. we don't know what a correct temperature is, but i do believe there is a valid role for the federal government and protect team resources. there is a strong role. without chronic capitalism being what it is, made it awfully difficult for people to seek some kind of compensation when a company built the plant like to farms producing pro
